Hi guys,

Your photos of your bags are amazing and we want more people to be able to see them! Here's a variety of ways to make that happen:

Post your photos to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #tombihn (that way we'll see your photo for sure and automatically add it to our photo reels).

Click the 'Submit Your Photos' link above any photo reel on our website (there's one on our home page (https://www.tombihn.com) at the bottom and on most bag pages as well) and upload your photos directly to the reels.

Send your photos to emailus@tombihn.com and we'll upload/add them for you! Or, post 'em here in this thread and we'll do the same. (We'll credit your Forum name unless you ask us otherwise.)

I can’t think of a photo I’ve seen posted here that I didn't love, so don’t be shy. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Starting now, we will grab any photos posted on the forums and add them to our photo reels (and post them on the blog and Instagram!) (again, crediting your username if you don't specify anything different) sets unless you ask us not to when you post the photos. Sound ok?

Hi guys,


If you would like your photos to be included in the sets, please email them to me -- darcy@tombihn.com (mailto:darcy@tombihn.com) -- along with how you would like to be credited and if there’s a URL to your blog or website that you’d like us to include. If you are OK with your photos being included but don't feel like emailing them to me, just respond here and I'll grab the photos you've posted here on the forums, or provide me with a link to your Flickr account if it's OK to grab them from there, too. I'll credit you with your forum handle unless you tell me otherwise.



Feel free to include any photos I've posted on the forums. I often go to flickr looking for pics to help my TB buying decisions..

I am totally going to have to check out those shoes. I saw on Ravelry that you said they are good for people with Plantar Fasciitis. Well, I definitely qualify in that department! My normal go-to shoes are either Birkenstock, Earth, or Orthaheel. I love the idea of minimalist shoes, though.

I hope they work out. Make sure you read the site information and as with any new shoes, work up to wearing them for extended periods. And I don't mean break them in, they are so soft, there is no break in for the shoe, but your foot will need to adjust to not having the contour your other shoes provide.

Here's a photo of my sock-in-progress, safely ensconced in my Iberian Travel Tray. It was taken while I was out at my local Starbucks. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/02/5y5ybuda.jpg

I love how well the travel tray works for my socks, as I knit them on 5 needles. The tray does a better job of not compressing them. I use the yarn stuff sacks for my other knitting projects.

Small cafe bag in Linen/Navy.

Got a surprise unboxing over the parapack lining but the bag is a complete and utter color/load WIN. Linen is sophisticatedly understated and it really pops next to the navy parapack. So glad I chose this combo!

Here I am finally using the medium yarn sack from my Swift to hold my Canon EOS-M camera and extra lens. Inside the YSS is an insert from the Lowepro Courier 80 bag. A mesh 3D cube with the camera accessories fits perfectly on top (and also in the back pocket of the SCB).

After a gleeful test carry around the house, the feel of the SCB is much better (for me) than the MCB. I just love it!

So glad this worked for you. When I read your edited post (in another thread) about wanting to see a picture about how the bag held up under wear, rather than stock pictures, I thought I had provided the wrong information in linking to the "Describe Linen" thread that you later said pushed you to order this combination.


@kkintea There are some posts of linen in the Describe linen (http://forums.tombihn.com/questions-about-bags-accessories/3784-describe-linen.html) thread, including a Cafe Bag image that Darcy posted, but I think there are also other recent images in the forums

ETA: Oops, didn't see your Edit: "Edit: I'm wondering how the color holds up, as compared to stock photos."

I'm guessing you switched to Solar to avoid waiting for the Wasabi version that's listed as being on back order till June. But since Solar Dyneema versions are no longer available, and Solar is being retired (again), there are probably people who would rather have a Steel Dyneema/Solar version of the Synapse 19 that you could swap with, if you really wanted.

Looks very good in the picture, either way.

I like the way the bag has been turned inside out, so the side pockets that were in the interior can be used to carry additional herbs on the outside of the bag (a trick that several people use for increasing the capacity of the shop bags when carrying bottles in these pockets). I also like the hint of the Nordic blue shop bag below.

Small cafe bag in Linen/Navy.

Got a surprise unboxing over the parapack lining but the bag is a complete and utter color/load WIN. Linen is sophisticatedly understated and it really pops next to the navy parapack. So glad I chose this combo!

Here I am finally using the medium yarn sack from my Swift to hold my Canon EOS-M camera and extra lens. Inside the YSS is an insert from the Lowepro Courier 80 bag. A mesh 3D cube with the camera accessories fits perfectly on top (and also in the back pocket of the SCB).

After a gleeful test carry around the house, the feel of the SCB is much better (for me) than the MCB. I just love it!


Glad to hear! I really like my Linen/Steel SCB -- it's a great EDC bag. I use my MCB for travel or days when I want to bring a few files home from work, but otherwise, it's me and my SCB! :-)

Always. It increases the carrying capacity of the bag. In addition, I can place items in the pockets that are frequently bagged in plastic, i.e. Household cleaners, shampoo; also cards and rolled magazines. If empty, I can also place a coffee drink in there for the carry into the house.

@hamiltee, @monkeylady, and others Using the Shop bag inside-out to increase the carrying capacity of the bag was a usage scenario that was discussed very early in the reviews of the Shop Bag. See, for example, the Five days with Shop Bag (http://forums.tombihn.com/bag-reviews/1573-five-days-shop-bag.html) thread by @rabergnc from November 2008, when the Shop Bag (in the "regular" size that is now called "small") debuted. His picture shows the bag inverted, which was also mentioned as being handy for carrying wine bottles in the pockets.

There also used to be a Shop Bag video that @maverick posted in the what's in your shop bag? (http://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos/1617-whats-your-shop-bag.html) thread. None of those links appear to work any more, and I can't find the original video elsewhere. However, my recollection is that @maverick also demonstrated how the shop bag could be used inside-out to carry items. That's the old Sapphire Dyneema for which there was a very limited run of shop bags. The color of Sapphire Dyneema shown in those pictures is fairly accurate (unlike the problems in showing the darker and more difficult to photograph Nordic Dyneema).

For my road trip last week, I took my Nordic Large Shop Bag, Navy Tri-Star and Nordic Synapse 19. It was a perfect trio -- helped by the Nordic SCB and Nordic SE I snuck into the Synapse. After business was done, I drove up to Ashland, Oregon, for the weekend. Here is the trio upon arriving at our room in the Ashland Springs Hotel.

Edited to add: The Shop Bag is for water bottles, coffee/tea maker and supplies, and food/snacks -- and it includes a Wasabi TT (my Nordic TT has not arrived yet). The Tri-Star is for clothing, toiletries and jogging shoes. The S19 is for electronics and daily carry stuff.

I love my YSS. They allow me to bring knitting along just about anywhere.

Here, my Wasabi Tall YSS is hanging on the footrest of our backyard swing chair (super easy to attach it using the cord loop) so I can take in the action of an epic ping-pong battle while making progress on the scarf I'm knitting for a family friend's son who is going to MIT in the fall. It's got three colors of yarn that my YSS is helping to keep untangled and clean. I love how simple the YSS is, but practical and nifty and good-looking too!

If you're using the browser of your computer, under either "Quick Reply" or the "Go Advanced" option for replies, click on the "insert image" icon to the right of the "Globe" icon for inserting web links -- if you hover your mouse over the icons they are identified (from left to right, starting with the globe): "Link", "Email", "Unlink", "Insert Image", and "Insert Video".

When the dialog box for "Insert Image" comes up, choose the "From Computer" tab to upload an image from your computer, then click the "Choose File" button to select an image file from your computer. Once you have chosen an image (e.g. a jpg), and it shows up with the file name as a selection, click on the "Upload file(s)" button. Depending on the size of your image, and your network connection, it can take a short amount of time to upload a file. If you are in the "Advanced" reply menu, you have the option to click on the "Preview" button to view your composed reply (with image) before you click the button to post.

You can upload up to five images in a post (I think that is a VBulletin limitation).

If you insert an image using the "From URL" tab, there may be issues about whether you can directly load the images if you are not the owner (e.g. on Flickr and from other sites, I can't have the images of other people's posts show up here -- even when I am adding a picture for someone because they say it has been posted to TB's Facebook page, I have to physically download the image and then upload it here from my computer in order to have it appear).

Thanks moriond. I've tried everything.

No such error messages when I attempt to attach it to gmail, so not sure what the issue is. In any event I'll figure it out, I feel bad that I couldn't share it immediately with forum members. : /

Did u check and see if they were low file counts?

Btw, in short this is my file loading process using my ipad ( which is more restrictive than using a MacBook )

1. Download photos into iPad's "photos".
2. Choose photo (s) that I wish to use.
3. Choose email option within "photos" and then email them to myself.
( because of my file size I could only send 5 in one email)
4. Then open said email and touch one of the pics, when the prompt comes up I hit save.
( if more than one it picks the number of shots in the email to save)
5. It is now saved into my "camera roll" at a low file count.
6. When I go into the "manage attachments" in the TB "additional options", I choose from the camera roll after I hit "add files"

This may seem like a round about way, but for an almost exclusive ipad user, it's the simplest I found thus far.

06-24-2014, 10:00 PM
soleilmoon, I have the same problem. I use a MacBookPro. I export my photos from iPhoto to my desktop, being careful to pick "Medium" file size. and then I Choose File and choose them from my desktop. If I try to do it directly from iPhoto, I get that red exclamation point!

Hope we get to see your pictures soon... unboxing pics are fun! :)

I'm happy with the Black Dyneema/Wasabi swap in for the original Black Ballistic/Solar that I ordered. I would've never have ordered the Black Dyneema (thought it was too loud) but I think it looks stunning and is perfectly fine. Even my husband gave it a big thumbs up and he'll be using it for work.Same goes for the Wasabi - I didn't think much of it but seeing it in person I'm sold on Wasabi too. It goes beautifully with the Black Dyneema. The Dyneema is also considerably lighter than the Ballistic Navy TriStar which is a good thing as DH will be lugging around a Lenovo Thinkpad (which will be housed in a Horizontal Brain Cell) and the thing weighs a ton. Not much he can do about that as it is a work issued laptop.



All in all very happy with my purchase.

I started packing this morning as our family is headed out first thing tomorrow morning to celebrate the holiday watching the Suncoast Offshore Boat Races in Sarasota, FL. As I was pulling out my trusty Western Flyer, I couldn't resist pulling out just a few more bags. Before I knew it, I had grabbed the kids' and my hubby's bags as well. What resulted was this:http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/03/ubypu7u4.jpg

I know this collection pales as compared to many on the forums, but I was astounded! There's a lot of TB goodness on this bed, and I didn't even get it all! I'm still missing one Wasabi Travel Tray and several straps and shoulder straps.

Some of the items pictured include my son's Brain Bag and Large Cafe Bag, my hubby's Tri-Star and older style Ristretto, and my larger bags (Western Flyer, Pilot, Synapse 19, two Little Swifts, one Swift, my much beloved Imago, and two Cafe Bags (one small, the other medium). It makes it hard for me to justify getting that Daylight Back Pack (even though I really want it!). I absolutely love all of my collection. I don't want to part with any of it. Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

The large rectangular thing towards the front is my Western Flyer Packing Cube Backpack. It's containing all the clothes I will need for the trip. The other two Packing Cube Shoulder bags contain either my swim suit and workout clothes or my running shoes. I'm still struggling with putting running shoes in my packing cube, but they fit so nicely. And it is washable, right?

I'm looking forward to this trip. I will be taking my Western Flyer (along with all the packing cubes), my Large Shop Bag, and my navy Little Swift. I may bring my small cafe bag, but I'm trying to keep things as minimal as possible. It's a car trip, so I can get away with more. Because of that, the Large Shop Bag will be holding my cervical pillow and night splint for my plantar fasciitis (it's no fun getting old). As much as I love the new laundry bag, I'll be taking along my Flip and Tumble shop bags to serve as dirty laundry duty. I am contemplating bringing my Majacraft Little Gem II spinning wheel, as we will have a balcony seat to the races, and it sounds like a grand time to me to sit and spin while the boats race away. Also, the Tour de Fleece starts up this weekend, so I'm justified, right?

@gochicken, @monkeylady, @taminca You could always visit the Download TOM BIHN backgrounds for your iPhone and iPad (http://www.tombihn.com/blog/download-tom-bihn-backgrounds-for-your-iphone-and-ipad) blog entry and use the iPhone 4S screensaver image to make your own luggage tag label (or crop down the iPad screensaver image if you want to get a slightly longer tag). This is probably worth posting separately elsewhere.

<< Faces blurred out to preserve anonymity. >>

Well this photo freaked me out until I read this......
@carl0 My personal favorite forum picture with dialog about preserving anonymity is this picture posted by NWhikergal from the thread requesting a picture of a Smart Alec on a 5'3" tall person. (Also, she's managed to color-coordinate her iPhone case with her Ibex merino wool jersey and include a picture of her cat:
https://forums.tombihn.com/attachments/photos-videos/6169d1399686899-photo-request-smart-alec-53-person-smart-alec4.jpg
Here's part of the excerpted dialog:

What are you holding in the last photo—a black cat?


Yes, she kept trying to wander into the photos, either to "assist me" or to be part of the photos. :) For scale purposes, I am holding a 10 pound black cat in the photo...


I thought you were using her as a cunning way to maintain anonymity whilst online...


@Scribe, my cat may have unwittingly sacrificed her privacy on my behalf - you are a bit too clever!

Here's my new Synapse 25, right out the the box! I LOVE the look of the Black Dyneema and the 'pop' of Wasabi when you unzip a compartment. It's like a mini dose of happiness every time I open the bag! I've only had it for about 20 minutes now, but I've already fit everything I need for my work EDC, with room to spare.

Contents include but not limited to: 15" MBP in its Cache (such a smooth fit!), my Canon G12 in its case, a 3D Clear Organizer with makeup and other sundries, my water bottle, pens, a fat little notebook, a Side Effect full of all my cables and electronica, wallet, keys, and a small + medium Organizer Pouches with business cards and various papers and receipts. Love it so much already - I love carrying only one bag!

A couple of photos:

Three people, Germany, France, Poland. 15 days for two of us; 21 days for the third (lucky teenager!). All our luggage. The Aeronaunts were awesome! Our relatives in Germany could not believe how light we were travelling.

We took a side trip to Poland for the weekend -- my daughter and I each took only our Co-pilots and a Aeronaut Packing Cube Backpack! Our relatives there said "Is that all? We brought two cars to the airport because we thought you'd have so much luggage."

We loved the bags!! Thanks to Tom Bihn for making the trip even more enjoyable!

Strange, my car drove itself from my job interview downtown in Seattle to the Tom Bihn store. I got out and had enough self-restraint to not buy the Black Dyneema Pilot I had my eyes on (it would be the perfect work bag, if I get this job promotion) and purchased a Solar and Coyote Mini Pouch, Wasabi Stuff Sack (for use in my NFTD), Kiwi Q-Kit, and Black Dyneema/Wasabi SE.

Q-Kit will hold my asthma inhaler, other pouches will hold knitter stuff (stitch markers, mini scissors, etc.)

@pinkknits How did they manage to find you one of the older style Side Effects in Black 400d Dyneema/Wasabi with the black cord pulls instead of the new Gun metal gray zippers? I think that's the old design with black on the metal zipper part, and not simply with added cord pulls to clipped Gun metal zipper tabs.

It was what was on the shelf (last Black Dyneema/Wasabi SE on the hanger, unsure if they had more in the back), so I grabbed it. Just one of the benefits of hitting up the storefront, you never know what you'll get!

I'm jealous -- well, not really in this case, since I ordered the Black Dyneema/Wasabi Side Effect when the cord pulls were the norm, but I have called in with exact color/product availability questions and not gotten products. (For example, I called in on the afternoon of their summer product launch to ask about kiwi Q- Kit availability, only to be told they'd sold out completely. But @monkeylady managed to find one of these when she stopped in the next morning. Sigh… I still don't have one of these in Kiwi, although they sent me ones in Aubergine. Cioyote, and two in Forest.) Just sayin' you have an unfair advantage, so appreciate it.

@Ilkyway - this made me smile, I know you mean Jail and I am in awe of your multilingual ability - something not emphasized in the United States where most of us only speak English - but Yale is one of our outstanding universities in the state of Connecticut, and this made me giggle!

Well thank you GoStanford for giving the opportunity back to laugh. I honestly busted out loud when I came to the university-part. I know I make mistakes and I know you all are great in overlooking them. But I would never had guessed this particular funny one if you had not pointed it out. Thank you. Scribe is the only other person to sometimes point the funny once out. I like that, I have to say, because I love language and I like to be in on the jokes I accidentally make. So, if next time it is as far from my intended meaning like Jail and Yale or howl and haul feel free to point it out!

And as for us non Americans learning all English: It started with Friends (very poorly synchronized to German), than came Terry Pratchett (I know - British), after that D. Adams for sure and than I was hooked. And I have to say many audio-books that origin in English language are shortened for the German Customers. I am so furious about this. They cut out pieces so that it fits on just 6 or what CDs. I had a fight with my mother about this once. She argued, that they wont cut out important stuff. I asked her if she would like them to cut pictures too, so that they would fit smaller frames (what about half a Mona Lisa?). But the English versions of the same Books are almost all the time unabridged. And there you have (one) reason, why my tiping is so... funny. I mostly listen to English. The reading part is only about 10% of my English-Consuming. Did you want to know all this? Probably not, but thank you for reading it anyway ;-)

This forum in fact helped me a lot in improving my ability to form sentences. If you only listen/read you learn to understand (I think there is not much I do not get. The most difficult book I listened to for now was "Thinking, Fast and Slow" but speaking/writing is a totally different challenge.

That is easily explained: we do not have that many good Films, Series and Books to get you hooked to our language. Sure we have some pritty good classics and there a some briliant resent authors but America combined with GB outnumbers us by fare. So I had so much more to chose from. And to learn a language at school/university is (mostly) no fun = meaning not easy to learn and you miss out quite a lot. My English-Teacher did not know the word sibling, did not know how to pronounce Dinosaur (clearly she had not seen Friends!) and did not know/could not explain the "knock-knock-jokes" to me (which I still don't get by the way). And we set all these traps with our "der", "die" and "das".

I can not speak/understand frensh because I do not like most of their films (the exceptions are extraordinary though!).

Below is the link to a free ebook library called Project Gutenberg.

All Books (sorted by popularity) - Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?sort_order=downloads)

It originated in the U.S where most books are out of copyright 100 years after their publication.

It is the same in France, I don't know about Germany.


Being French born, I found that reading English language classic works and watching classic film with subtitles was very helpful to grasp English, a dictionary was a great help, online ones are even easier to use.

It helps a lot with words that sound the same, their meanings, can be found, just from the spelling.


U.S English has an extra twist, verbs and prepositions (above, about, across, against, along, among, around, at, before, behind, below, beneath, beside, between, beyond, by, down, during, except, for, from, in, inside, into, like, near, of, off, on, since, to, toward, through, under, until, up, upon, with and within) can be combined and essentially form another word, which, can only be understood from the context.

For example: Our moderators put up with our posts changing direction. Our moderators tolerate our posts changing direction. Both mean the same, but put up with is not in the dictionary.

putting on = wearing, putting off= procrastinating, putting down=humiliating, talking down.

Ilkyway you are the cutest!

i wasn't offended because some French films are not good at all.

I love Classics: English (UK, U.S, India, Canada), European and Japanese films.
All of them with subtitles.

I can't stand dubbing.


Cows are wonderful! I grew up in a province where cows, are king, well the cheese they make are.

Well, sometimes, I have trouble expressing myself in short sentences and I have to check the dictionary to see if a word that seems to be the same in English and French is really the same.

There is also the fun of "false friends" words like actually and actuellement, wait I have to go to the dictionary because I always mix up those up, Actually means really and actuellement means now.

I usually have no trouble figuring out what you are trying to say by just prounouncing your words in my head. That you learn/ practice english by listening rather than reading makes total sense to me !

However, when I read Yale, all I could think of was the University in Connecticut.. LOL! Now that I remember how germans pronounce J, it makes sense!

And ability to actually effectively communicate in a second language is so impressive!

Full-size towel is already in the end pocket.

Haha! Actually, I did think "Damn, gotta do something about that fire-extinguisher that appears in all my bag photos". But there was no way I could do that without standing up and letting everyone know I was taking photos of my bag :(

I think most of my bags are okay, actually. Some of the bosses (mine included) carry a crappy backpack or duffel bag. Unless you're going to court or meeting a client (= black bag), nobody actually cares as long as you're wearing office wear, i.e. dress/shirt + pants or skirt. They are literally too busy suing people. I could definitely carry my Nordic MCB on casual Fridays at a firm like this one!

It's Steel! Great combination, IMO. I'm one of the folks who wish Cardinal would come back.

I was a bit upset when I first got the CP, as it was covered in quite a bit of dirt. (Its previous owner lived near a desert.) My house is dusty like you would not imagine, so I thought I'd seen it all. But after a few wipe-downs and using sticky tape to remove pet hair and major dirt bits, it looks pretty new. Phew.

It's Steel! Great combination, IMO. I'm one of the folks who wish Cardinal would come back.

I was a bit upset when I first got the CP, as it was covered in quite a bit of dirt. (Its previous owner lived near a desert.) My house is dusty like you would not imagine, so I thought I'd seen it all. But after a few wipe-downs and using sticky tape to remove pet hair and major dirt bits, it looks pretty new. Phew.

I'd love for Cardinal to make a comeback, your photos of the CP and moriond's photos of her A45 in another thread made me go OOOOOH.....
It doesn't help that the store pics of the Cardinal A45 are still up on the item page, wistful sigh lol
I do wish that perhaps the emergency rescue service of a country or perhaps a major hospital would take notice of it one day and collaborate with TB for an entire line of Cardinal emergency bags.
Another totally random thought: is it just me or does anyone else think the Cardinal CP would look really cute hung around a St Bernard's neck? ^.^
ETA: using an Absolute Strap of course, for the St Bernard's comfort.

@adalangdon
did you consider just hosing down the dirty CP when you 1st got it? (showerhead, cold water)
I know I'm really lazy, and that seems like the easiest thing to do.
I'm trying to imagine you using sticky tape on the CP and I'm going like O.O and >.<

Yeah, I thought of it but I'm scared to leave my bag in the sun. I once left a backpack to dry on the balcony after soaking and scrubbing it. After 5 hours, the exterior was really hot while the inside was still quite damp. So I had to let it bake for a few more hours after turning it inside out. I don't want to subject my CP to that :S

The tape I used was just regular 3M tape, no worries! There was a lot of crap on the zippers, especially where they were sewn into the ballistic nylon. I find tape very useful for removing stray pet hairs (one of my cats is a cream-coloured FUR BOMB) or large specks of dirt. Gentle and effective.

Yep! Replace with a Cardinal or red CP, best looking rescue St Bernard! And plus they might be able to pack other useful stuff in there ^.^

Regarding the drying of the bag, yeah, leaving it out in our kind of sunlight isn't a good idea, plus with the humidity here, it won't dry that fast. What I've found to be a better method is to dry it with a towel, large one. For the inside, pack the towel in and press gently to absorb the moisture. Then leave the bag in front of a fan with its opening facing the fan.

Your method sounds great too, will give it a try if I should ever need to.

Hmm, good idea. The towel inside would prevent the pooling of water, especially in rigid bags like ballistic Pilots and CPs.

I really hate our weather :( :( Of all the things I miss about living overseas, I miss not having to deal with weather like this all year round the most.

I kept forgetting to take pictures whenever I'd get an order, so yesterday when I picked up my most recent one, I took a group shot of my items. Though... my new 3DFOC managed to hide/escape from me when I was taking the pictures, so it is missing from this lineup, alas. I definitely have a problem, but I can't help but love a well-crafted bag.

I spent last week kayaking/camping around the San Juan Islands and, while the rest of my TB gear was stowed away in the tent, the versatile Wasabi Travel Tray was my constant companion while kayaking. It contained my lunch for each day and, stashed on the kayak next to a SealLine dry bag, held up wonderfully. I was concerned about the salt water exposure, but upon arriving home, I tossed it in the washing machine, and the TT came out as good as new.

... Maybe I should order an Ultraviolet Shop Bag so I can match it to my MINI as well!!! :)

My Cooper S is a somewhat rare Black Eye Purple/Purple Haze from 2005. They very sadly didn't keep that colour around. Even the shop mechanics swoon over it any time I've ever had to bring the car in. Much the same reaction I'm sure we all have to bag photos (let alone sightings)!

Googled your car, it is SWEET! I think Aubergine and Plum seems to match the color better though!

You mean complete with the lines? That'll be the first and ultimate in enabling (if it happens), buying a car on impulse to match your bag!!

It was love at first sight when I glimpsed an Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot at my recent visit to the TB Mothership, a love that has only deepened upon discovering the extra o-rings and after using it as my business EDC for several weeks. Just as I was thinking that MAYBE my Nordic CP deserves to go to another loving home, I was shown again how marvelous a Dyneema CP, especially Nordic Dyneema, is for one-bag travel.

Am heading out for a week-long business trip and needed to pack business and casual wear, along with running shoes and workout wear. And also needed a business bag. Since I will be hoofing through airports and using public transpo, I traded my usual CP-WF combination for a CP-TS arrangement, and found that a PACKED CP can snuggle inside the front larger compartment of the TS in a perfect fit!

Photos are below... sorry for the awful color of the walls. Not sure what happened, but my walls are a nice subtle green (almost wasabi-like) not the garish yellow that appeared on my screen.

And here is the loaded TS, with CP, on my 5'3" frame. I walked around the house, up and down the stairs, and it felt comfortable on my back. Not too heavy and very nice to have my hands free.

My first thought was: how nice the blues pop up against the yellow ;-). I feel the same about the two Co-Pilots: the Aubergine as a Solo and the Nordic as a bag-in-bag.
Love your Tri-Star.... one day... maybee... but for now I just marvel at all the great pictures.

For my road trip last week, I took my Nordic Large Shop Bag, Navy Tri-Star and Nordic Synapse 19. It was a perfect trio -- helped by the Nordic SCB and Nordic SE I snuck into the Synapse. After business was done, I drove up to Ashland, Oregon, for the weekend. Here is the trio upon arriving at our room in the Ashland Springs Hotel.

Getting excited seeing the TS and S19 together, knowing I will soon have the same sitting in my overhead locker. Black/Wasabi for the TS and Navy/Ultraviolet for the S19. (listen to me: acronyms already and only 3 posts in!)

I may offer to 'trade' Ms Paul7575 for the Black/Iberian S19 I have purchased for her birthday should she prefer the Navy. Unfortunately for me, my luck is such that she will see both, fall in love with both and thus claim both! I have to make sure I have my tactics and patter down-pat before the 'birthday' unveiling.

Actually, it is a pre-birthday gift as there is no was I can be patient until her birthday. I am already exercising all the patience I have!

An inelegant, but effective, solution to wearing both binoculars AND camera, as Mr. Monkeylady demonstrates. 8356

When he lifts the camera to his face, he does not simultaneously lift the binoculars. Taken in Ecuadorean Andes. The camera is suspended off his backpack straps with long TB key straps.

Monkeylady, may I ask you for a close up on the camera-mount you/Mr. Monkeylady build there? Is the weight on his neck or on the Shoulder Straps?

By the way, love the room. All the wood is so beautiful and the sparkle of sun you added with your Travel Tray... just great! Have a wonderful trip.

09-07-2014, 08:35 PM
Mr. Monkeylady has corrected me (what do I know?) and says the TB key straps are attached to the harness for the binocs. With this the case, the weight is distributed through the harness. We'll take some pics in the next few days and post.

Yes, Sacha Lodge is extraordinarily beautiful and the jungle is breath-taking. A highly recommended trip, but, alas, not for very young children...jungle-eager 11 years and up, yes.

Is Sacha Lodge in Yasuni? I spent some time in Cuyabeno and it was fabulous, but I'd love to check out Yasuni (especially since it's looking like it'll be compromised by oil drilling soon...).

monkeylady
09-07-2014, 11:50 PM
Yasuni and Sacha Lodge are on opposite sides of the Rio Napo. The cutting in of oil roads has already begun but not visible from the river or the points of entry for tourists who can only usually enter with a guia. The habitat destruction on the north side of the river is heartbreaking. But we didn't see it first hand, only pictures. Sacha is located on a large private land preserve, about 2-21/2 hrs. down river from Coca, then a 2 mile flat hike through muddy trails to a lake, then a 1/2 hr. canoe ride to the lodge.
The bird life is quite beautiful. We did see caiman and night monkeys there. And on a special excursion to Yasuni, we visited two parrot licks, one right on the river, and another in Yasuni itself, after a little hike. The parrots were amazing and the scarlet macaws overhead were a hoot, likely family members and wrestling around like puppies.

Prior to our stay at Sacha, we stayed awhile in two different birding lodges on the east side of the Andes, and at different high elevations. The bird life was even more amazing and more accessible to viewing. We did see Napo tamarinds in Sumaco.
While the rain forest on the river was amazing, the Andes were magnificent. I really hope you get to go.

The backpack love of my life. Here's my Smart Alec in black/steel. Less than one year and already so many great memories. Many of these pics were taken on its first day just for sizing. This post was inspired by the last shot, taken with Alec hanging in my bedroom: a cave deep on Santorini's caldera. Alec has been housed with me here for months, like the loyal companion I'd hoped he'd be. These are pics just to help see the bag, and some of its different options. Bungee loop was later swapped for 2 gatekeeper clips. And upper modular pocket was also added and rarely removed. Anyways, enough blabbering (I also can't get enough of my side effect!), here are a few shots and hopefully more to come.

This is quite a photo! I know that Sydney is easier for you to reach than those of us oceans away, but this is still mighty impressive to see your beautiful bags in front of these remarkable landmarks. We have been listening in the car to a live recording of John Denver performing at the Sydney Opera House, and this photo creates a connection to that music.
